Shooting victim recovers, suspect appears in court

The suspect shot the victim early Sunday morning in Bellevue.

A Bellevue shooting victim reached a stable condition after police administered first aid and rushed him to Harborview Medical Center early Sunday (Dec. 2) morning.

A 31-year old suspect allegedly shot the 42-year-old victim at Illahee Apartments (at the 14000 block of Bel-Red Road) at about 4 a.m. Police responded and investigated the scene after assisting the victim.

A Redmond police K-9 unit responded to help locate the suspect and found him sitting in a nearby vehicle. Bellevue police believe there is no ongoing threat to the community and no outstanding suspects.

The victim’s condition began to improve Monday and he is expected to make a full recovery, according to Seth Tyler, a spokesperson for Bellevue police.

Detectives are still investigating the suspect to determine a motive and have found probable cause for assault in the second degree. His bond is set for $100,000 and he had his second court appearance on Dec. 5.
